Course summary

Our philosophy programme is a distance-learning course designed for those with a broad interest in core areas of philosophy. It services the needs of philosophy graduates who wish to deepen their understanding of philosophy as well as graduates of cognate subjects who seek to develop a sophisticated understanding of philosophical debates.

Students can choose from a range of modules covering a variety of different themes and specialist areas, as well as develop their own dissertation project.

The programme is delivered via distance learning. There is no requirement to visit our campus, although you are always welcome to do so. The programme consists of online lectures, discussion forums and one-to-one tutorials.

Course Overview

By focusing on such areas of Philosophy, the Philosophy (MA) services the needs of graduates who wish to build upon their first degree in Philosophy or a cognate discipline, e.g. as preparation for a research degree.

The programme also meets the needs of teachers of A-level Philosophy, in that its modules overlap core parts of the A-level Philosophy curriculum, such as Philosophy of Religion and Ethics.

However Philosophy (MA) is sufficiently broad in the extent to be also suitable for anyone who is looking to broaden their acquaintance with, and understanding of, philosophy as it is practiced in the English speaking world today.

Candidates will be able to choose from a range of modules covering a variety of different themes and specialist areas. The modules are built around the research specialisms of our academic staff all of whom are research active and regularly publish their thoughts and ideas.

Philosophy (MA) is a modular programme. In part I, students take six 20-credit modules. In part II, students are required to write a dissertation.

Assessment

Assessment is usually based on written work in the form of long and short essays, reports, book reviews and reflective pieces.
